Forum: netlabels Subject: Upload instructions for netlabels.

Hey all,

I'm posting these here as reference for people wanting to upload their netlabel releases to this collection.

Please do the first half of this list, and then contact me (at simon at archive dot org) with the email address of the account you signed up with, and the name of your label, and I can do the rest of the setting up. Please note a label is meant to have multiple releases by multiple artists.

Thanks,
s!

--

1. Go onto www.archive.org <http://www.archive.org> and make a
'library card' account.
2. FTP on to audio-uploads.archive.org with name = email address,
password = library card pass
3. Make one directory for each release with the directory name
being the release number (like nishi001 or however you do it!)
4. Upload each release into each directory. If you want a cover to
appear on the page AND a large version people will get in the ZIP,
then make a thumbnail (160*160 or similar) called nishi001.jpg in
the nishi001 directory - that will appear on the page itself. Then
make nishi001large.jpg and also put it in the directory.

So in the end, you should have:

/nishi001/
/nishi001/firstmp3.mp3
/nishi001/secondmp3.mp3
/nishi001/nishi001.jpg
/nishi001/nishi001large.jpg


1. Go to: http://www.archive.org/audio/audio-contribute.php - and hit
'Begin'
2. If there are any folders which it's having trouble with, log on to
the ftp and get rid of any weird/illegal characters like ^, [, ], spaces, and so
on!
3. Hit the 'Import Recording' button for the first release (repeat this step for all the other releases.)
4. You'll get to a large page where you fill in details about the
release - hit the 'I have rights to upload this release', as long as you
do! Oh, and make sure you're putting it in your own collection.
5. Fill in the TITLE box with ARTISTNAME - EPNAME [RELEASENUMBER] - not
just the title of the EP. For example, for the latest Monotonik release,
I filled it in with 'Vim! - Remixconsonantthing EP [mtk120]' - please
try to do this, it's the #1 thing people forget to do, heh.
6. In the description, fill in info about the song/EP.
7. Add a Creative Commons license if you want - if you want a license to spread but not remix, then try adding
Attribution-NoDerivs-NonCommercial, which is answering NO, NO to the 2 questions. Change NoDerivs if you want people to be able to remix freely.
8. Add at least one category by scrolling around in the little box.
Click 'More' to add a second category. Categories are your friend :P
9. Then just click on the 'Create' (?) button when you're finished, and
the release will go for curator approval.
10. You can fill in other categories like Date, Artist, Length, if you
want, but no big deal either way.
11. IMPORTANT NOTE - make sure you 'Describe the files' after you import - either do it then, or hit the 'File Options' button later, and make any necessary changes from the auto-XML generation from ID3 tags - some stuff may be wrong.
12. IMPORTANT NOTE #2 - click 'Do not make derivations of this show' button unless you want 64kbps, OGG, VBR versions of all you shows as well. I recommend you DON'T get derivations unless you're uploading VBR MP3s or WAVs, cos they can be confusing at low bitrates.

Hi Simon,

I've just finished my "netlabel" website - so all the infrastructure at my end is up. However, I'm the only person who's managed to upload my tunes to the site. I've got five or six others who will be uploading as well, but I'd like to get all the pieces in place now to create a netlabel proper. Is it OK to post the site as a netlabel now and add their music later? I'm no narcissist and want to get others involved, but I'm in the groove and want to continue the process. So whadayathink?

Hello Simon!

I'm Wilder Gonzales and I tried to upload some mp3s to your server but it didn't work out...

The music is space-rock and minimalism.

Can you give me a permission? I don't know what happens...

Hope you can answer as soon as possible.

Wilder Gonzales.

What happened is that I get connected to your server but never could upload anything...
Something as a mistake appears and canceled the transmission to your server...
I did this with a friend who knows more about this.. I talked to him later...

Regards,

Wilder.

Hello,

i think there's some trouble with the importation of the first release of my netlabel Ego Twister (http://www.archive.org/audio/audio-details-db.php?collection=egotwister&collectionid=twe001)

The release appears as "completed" in my contribution center, and it seems that all the 27 files from this recording (with their derivations - but not all the files received a derivation) are now hosted here : http://audio64.archive.org/2/audio/twe001/

But on the release page, no tracks appears under the description, and none of the links to streams and zip file work (this error message appears when clicking on them : "The specified item cannot be found or its XML is unparseable...".

Do you think i did something wrong when importing ?

Thanks for your help !
yan
